Critical Thinking in Translational Medicine: Physiology Capstone is a practical course designed to provide students with the skills necessary to critically evaluate basic science research in physiology, and to transition such research to the clinical setting. The course will focus on critical thinking and reasoning incorporating ones collective experiences and knowledge in fundamental foundational material. The expectation is that students will integrate material from prior and current courses and apply such knowledge to interpretation of bench to bedside research. Course components will include both written and oral communication skill development at the professional level.
- Critical review of basic science and clinical seminar/grand rounds presentations.
- Critical thinking approach to assessing and interpreting scientific publications.
- Application of crtical thinking and reasoning in self-assessment.
- Development of written communication skills as applied to basic science physiology and medicine.
- Development of oral presentation skills as applied to basic science physiology and medicine.
- Integration of knowledge from bench to bedside.
